Hmm... I would try getting something different to drink if I were you... It may be the Coke that you are allergic to... or maybe something in their machine is getting into the drinks that your body reacts badly to... *shrugs* That was how I found out I was allergic to corn... I tried eating just a little bit of it, but I was still not quite feeling just right the next day... I feel sorry for you...
Beware my Meddling pole! *smacks self with said pole* Ouch!

I've heard it both pronounced here with the H present and silent. There are a fair number of different accents in my locality...nothing too exotic, but just minor variations between dialects. I pronounce the H, myself...therefore the "a" instead of "an". Heh.

Ooh. He wouldn't happen to be Low German? One generally tends to come across clusters of Mennonite communities, though they (or their descendants, rather) are spread out quite widely internationally...there's a large concentration of them here in southern MB. Oh, baht yo. Chances are I'll be able to recognise a last name if it has Mennonite origins. They dominate our phone book. (grins) It's terrible if you have a friend whose father's name is Jake Friesen, because you'll have seven or more Jake Friesens to choose from.

Not entirely sure... I haven't exactly made German accents and such a part of my study. «snrk» I made the mistake of taking Spanish the last two years. He may very well be, however. Our last name is common everywhere. Every time I go to a new camp or something, I meet another obscure relative. And then come home, and my dad's like "Oh, yeah! That's my second cousin eight times removed's daughter in law!" It always blows my mind...
That's all, folks. Have a nice day.
